I have added more flowers and completely covered the background with washy color. I know that if I want the light flowers to be the most important element, I have to get rid of the white in the background. I am at a stopping place. I will study the painting for awhile to decide how much detail I want in the secondary, background shapes of the leaves. I like the back runs that create movement in the background. The colors are looking pretty sweet to me at this point, so I will take that into consideration as I complete the painting.
